Wooden Spice Rack Transformation

Do you remember this bead project of ours we did a while back?  
Here are a few pictures to refresh your memory.

Well we found another like minded blogger Frugal with a Flourish.
See what she did with her wooden spice rack. 

Forever ago, ok – only in May – but it feels like forever, I got this really cute spice rack for $3.  18 jars and 18 alternate brown caps (in the sleeve on top). 

And in that sleeve was a little message that said ….

Change something to match my decor?  Well thank you little slip o paper!  Don’t mind if I do!  I wanted to turn it into a different type of storage.  So of course, I grabbed my two favorite friends to help with the transformation.  A can of Heirloom White and a can of Black Satin spray paint!  I gave the cabinet base and door a couple coats of of Heirloom White.  Better already. 

I then gave the caps a spray of satin black.  

Ok – want to see the final product???  Check out my new bead storage box!

Ta-da!  Isn’t it adorable in my little “craft center” with my sewing desk, custom cork board and my lovely shelf!  (Pay no attention to the canvas with the flower – that is going away shortly to be replaced by a new piece!)

I just love it!  And the little jar tops came out so cute!!  Aren’t they adorable – I just want to get in and make some jewelry.

I am very pleased with this transformation – even made the little knob on the door black too!  

So tell me – have you ever run across one of these old spice sets?  If so what would you make it into?  

Well isn’t that just a cute display using an old wooded spice rack?
